In your element with your temperament

In the first place you have to know who you are. That starts with awareness. How aware are you of your behavior, your feelings and your thinking? Only then you can find out what really suits you.

With knowing and recognizing temperaments you put a first step in the awareness of who you really are.

As you can read on this site and in the book, the temperaments can be traced to the elements in nature, like fire, air, earth and water.

Everyone has temperament

You, me, we all have a temperament.

Your temperament keeps your whole life in you. On your temperament you build your character. Your character changes maybe, your temperament does never change. You will have to deal with it your whole life.

That is why it is so important that you know and recognize that temperament in you. You’ll know right away what your strengths are and your suffer from certain properties.

Usually we have the properties of multiple temperaments in us. Yet there is often one temperament what most stands out. At me it is the phlegmatic temperament. This temperament is connected to the element water.

Since I have clarity about my nature, my temperament, I can also gauge how I come across to others. Also I understand the behavior of the people around me much better, by the recognition of their temperament. So is dealing and communicating with others a challenge; so I am in my element with my temperament!  

After one night I understand you

This is the title of my book about temperaments. This booklet was created after years of observing my own behavior and that of others. The original is written in Dutch. The ebook is soon available in English.

In my book and on this site I will try to explain the different temperaments.

Our temperament, our nature, we can’t hide. You always see it in a person’s behavior. As the elements of fire, air, earth and water differ from each other, so the four temperaments also differ.

It is no wonder that someone with “fire” in itself, will react very different than someone with “water” as element.

I want to teach you how to recognize the temperament of yourself and the temperament of your partner, your child or your colleague. When you know your own temperament and the temperament of others, your communication will be much better! Your relationship with them as well.
